Golden Tate: "I feel bad for Daniel Jones"

LawrenceTaylor56 : 6/30/2022 8:43 am
Didn't see it posted. If I missed it, I'll delete.

Quote:
“I honestly feel bad for Daniel,” Tate told Andy Vasquez of NJ Advance Media on Wednesday. “He was drafted into a rebuilding organization for one, had Pat Shurmur for a year and then got Joe Judge for two years, now another head coach and another rebuild going into his fourth season. He hasn’t had Saquon [Barkley], myself, [Kenny] Golladay, Sterling [Shepard]. No one is ever on the field at the same time. And then on top of that, he had [Jason] Garrett [as his offensive coordinator] and that probably didn’t help much.

I think this his been the fatal flaw for the Giants since 2017 — the assumption everything is fine at the QB position — and it’s everyone else.

Why don’t we feel bad for Darius Slayton that he’s had to play with a QB who misses critical games each year due to injury?

Why don’t we feel bad for Joe Judge for inheriting a QB that struggles with some of the fundamentals?

The more true and intellectually honest assessment is many of the principals, from coaching to skills players and yes the QB have underperformed and missed time. And it’s a collective failure.

And when he's a backup on Pittsburgh next year, does that mean you'll be eating crow?



And if is still here? What will you be eating?


No we will be happy that Giants have a legit starting QB. However nothing so far has shown that he can and from what he has shown, he can't read defenses fast enough, isn't holding on to the ball and doesn't get the ball in the right place at the right time consistently.. I am sorry if the OL/bad coaches damaged him, if thats an excuse. I only care about how he will do going forward. No more chances, deliver or move on.. He can take his bag of excuses to Tate's house and throw a party..

You just choose not to see it because you are too caught up in just bitching about the group that looks at the DJ situation more in black and white and would rather complain about them.

In reality, there are BBI posters that didn't want Jones before last year and still don't; others that were converted in 2021 and wanted to move on from him this past offseason; many still willing to give him a chance in 2022 but he has to be really good; still others that think with just a decent year he should be at least tagged; and yet still others that think he will be one of the better QBs in the league and we should want to extend him longer term.

There are a fair amount of posters in every one of the above groups. Some are dug in and have stayed as such, and many move within the various groups based on time and circumstance.

You're actually being disingenuous to suggest otherwise if you read this board every day.



Yup, all those Jones threads were full of good discussions where both sides were being fair. That's definitely BBI, right? LOL.

The loudest groups of posters are on one side or the other. The gray area is represented by many people who don't post frequently, or at all anymore. So yeah, they are out there, but the effort has become so futile that they don't really post anymore.

Nothing at all disingenuous saying that a large majority of the posting done on this site is by people dead set in their viewpoints and will hammer you do death if you don't agree with it. I know you know this, no reason to pretend like you don't.


Again that's just nonsense. Posts come from everyone and everywhere and you can engage with who you want to, or not. If the gray is all your looking for then you can find it easily imv. To the extent you feel you can't or it's futile, then hopefully you better choices than just complaining about it on these threadz. Or did you run out of popcorn?

And by the way (and you should surely know this), you aren't exactly a shade of gray yourself and are plenty dead-set in your own viewpoints.
I hope I'm wrong  
allstarjim : 6/30/2022 2:04 pm : link
But to me it seems like a chicken or egg situation. Is the lack of system continuity causing Jones to struggle more or is Jones' ineffectiveness and lack of durability causing the lack of system continuity.

The answer is probably some of both.
jim  
mittenedman : 6/30/2022 2:21 pm : link
The answer is at least a lot of A. Garretts not in the NFL anymore and when Jones’ backups played they were far worse.

The only thing we know for sure is that Jones was elevating a pathetically bad offense to some degree.

Absolutely, I have conviction about many things. But i'm not going to sit on BBI all day and tell everyone how much Jones sucks (even when I agree with it, in part) while completely ignoring there's more to one component on why that is.

I was lukewarm but okay on him going into 2021, but wanted to see clear improvements in his game. I wanted to see a guy that could make decisive plays that beat a Defense, kept drives alive and got the team into the end zone when given the opportunity. I didn't see it anywhere near the level I was hoping for, so he lost my support.

I want the team to move on from Jones, but okay with the concept that those two first round picks went to other premium areas. While we buy a little time to improve roster, wean off bad contracts and hope the next draft has more/better QB prospects.
I agree that Jones...  
bw in dc : 6/30/2022 3:20 pm : link
wasn't dealt the best hand, but as the 6th pick it's very hard to convince me that anyone - including our owner - should feel "bad" for Jones.

If there was more evidence that Jones had shown difference-making skills, I would be willing to consider this. But Jones hasn't. What we have seen over three years is a game manager-type with a very low ceiling.

Mike from Ohio : 6/30/2022 3:49 pm : link
would agree that Jones has been dealt a bad hand with the team around him and the bungled coaching hires. But that doesn't mean Jones is a good QB held back only by those factors.

The same GM who couldn't draft his way out of a paper bag is the one who drafted Jones. Across several years he has continued to make the same mistakes he made as a rookie. He can't stay healthy, and that is more because of his careless running style not crushing hits he is taking in the pocket. He still feels like the exact same player he was in his rookie year.

It can be true that the Giants have done nothing to help Daniel Jones succeed, and also that Daniel Jones just isn't an NFL level QB. A really talented QB would have shown some flashes of brilliance by now. Aside from a play here or there, Jones' career has been largely forgettable.

Said this on BBI many times: Luck plays a big part in NFL careers.  
81_Great_Dane : 6/30/2022 4:52 pm : link
Tom Brady was lucky. He also turned out to be good (understatement), but he landed in the perfect spot. Josh Rosen, unlucky. He didn't play well, but QBs with worse rookie seasons have gotten a second season with the team that drafted him. To go way back, Jim Plunkett was unlucky early, lucky late.

We could all think of guys who landed in the right or wrong spot and their careers spun out differently because of it.

I think Tate is exactly right this far: Daniel Jones was very unlucky to be picked by the dysfunctional Giants, then unlucky to have two coaching changes and three coaches within four seasons, then unlucky to have Jason Garrett as his OC. His being unlucky doesn't tell us that he would have been good if he'd had better luck. We don't know. I think that the Giants have concluded the same thing, so they are giving him another chance with (hopefully) better coaching and development, but not picking up his fifth-year option because he hasn't been very good.

I can't tell how much of Jones's bad play is a result of bad coaching and how much is on him. Maybe he blossoms now. Not counting on it, but it's possible.

The difference between a backup and a starter in the NFL is the ability between the ears. It's decisionmaking, it's processing what's he's seeing on the field in the frame of time given at this level. It's instinctiveness.

If you don't have those in the correct amounts, but you have the arm and the leg, you're still an NFL player, just not a starter.

Jones has not been good, and he’s been in a shitty situation. How that nets out, nobody knows, we all have our opinions, but no certainty no matter how convincing our position may appear to us. It like being positive a team is going to cover —and then then they don’t. In this case, it’s one of those situations where I do hope I am wrong, and happy to acknowledge the possibility that I might be.
Golden Tate, in the big picture sense, is completely right....  
SGMen : 7/1/2022 6:08 am : link
Folks, lets be real as what Tate said in that blurb is spot on correct.

Rookie 2019: had zero first team reps and thrown into the fire where his passing was legit but his fumbles ridiculous. He worked on it during the off-season.
2nd yr 2020: The OL was horrific and Barkley hurt for good part and the stats showed it. His fumbles improved and his pocket presence improved by only a bit, IMHO. He also had zero camp really due to Covid and was thrown to the fire with a new offense and a lack of playmakers.
3rd yr 2021 - Jones OL again sucked and Barkley took a step backk as a runner only showing flashes on occasion. Injuries to playmakers negated any shot of being good. With time Jones was still good but that rarely happened. Expectations were not met and his development seemed stagnant. Garrett blew chunks and didn't help!

This is Jones year to show he has the tools and honestly I believe he will have a very good year if he doesn't get hurt. My biggest issue with him is injuries. He also can't "birddog" a receiver like he did at times last year.

Big ifs but if the OL, RB Barkley, Receivers stay healthy and develo (Toney especially but Robinson the rookie too), well there is potentiial for success and I think the Giants will be competitive.

9 - 8 is best case scenario and 7-10 is likely worst given the schedule. But until they play the games who really knows right?

Expecting Jones to overcome the truly dysfunctional circumstances is ridiculous. It's why he's still here. You are saying DO IT ANYWAYZ!! but it doesn't work that way in the NFL. If you have as bad a front office, coaching staff & injury situation as Jones has had, you are going to suck at the NFL level. It's as simple as that.

"Overcome" has certainly been a very overused word around here. Just look at the Giants drafting the last decade coupled with all the front office issues that were exposed recently. This does not mean Jones will ever be a quality QB with better talent around him but he certainly has been very handicapped thus far.

I am so sick of reading this crap. So let me see if I have the anti-Eli s argument down.

So before his 2007 play off run he didn't play well. I think people have a sort of warped sense of how QBs play the sport .

In that 2007 playoff run, Eli had more yards than anyone at 800+ yards. Tied for the most TDs with 6 with Brady. Had like a 96 passer rating and had the best TD/Int ratio as well. In other words he pretty much outplayed legends of the game like Peyton, Favre, and Tom Brady.

So if he is not doing that then he is pretty much a pedestrian QB. And some scrub douchebag Dave Gettlemen found at the pro bowl of all fucking things is his equal right.

Het Jones is pretty much history here. This team is pretty much going to suck next year. Daboll might just be another Ben Mcadoo. Even if he isn't it should take him YEARS to perfect his craft. They didn't pick up Jones option for a reason.

I am not saying this will happen to Jones, but given a better chance this year we will find out. I remain hopeful, less optimistic. By the way I felt the same about Eli after seeing both the Minn and GB bay at giant stadium in 2007. I was proven wrong....thank G-d.

I am not saying this will happen to Jones, but given a better chance this year we will find out. I remain hopeful, less optimistic. By the way I felt the same about Eli after seeing both the Minn and GB bay at giant stadium in 2007. I was proven wrong....thank G-d.



Stafford at least put up very good numbers in Detroit. Stafford first full season he put up 5000-41-16.

Jones has 45 tds in 3 seasons!

Granted he had some nice parts around him on offense but watching about 5 minutes of a Detroit game was all you needed to conclude Stafford had elite QB skills. So, if you are attempting to use this as a proxy for Jones, it's way, way off.

that Daniel Jones is well- liked in the locker room, and players view him as being smart, dedicated, and having the right set of tools. All reasons to continue to root for him to succeed.

But that all has to be taken separately from the product that Jones puts on the field game day.

Really perceptive post! +1 from me.
5 minutes huh?

How about the 12 years of a whole lot of nothing?

Four winning seasons in 12 years is elite?

He very well may be. However, we got a look at the offense without him and it was much, much worse. A whole different level of suck. And - when he played, Glennon was significantly worse than his career norm, too, which would further the notion that the situation the Giants QB was stepping into - whoever it was - was making him look bad.

Regardless, after watching Glennon & Fromm play, Jones was clearly elevating one of the worst situations you'll ever see at the NFL level.

The funny thing is, I'm spending way too much time defending him. I think there's a very real chance he's David Carr'd by now: it's been that bad around him. But I'm interested to see him play in a functional situation.

if you are eliciting people “feeling bad” for you so much that they need to speak out about it. Your own owner.

You haven’t displayed the proper skills OR leadership abilities.

I don’t know why some can’t see that. The Giants try to normalize this BS of talking up players in the media who have proven nothing and talking up their only problems as being circumstances that largely involved those exact players. It is and should be pretty simple you shouldn’t need to be talked into the upside of players it should be clear on the field.



Expecting Jones to overcome the truly dysfunctional circumstances is ridiculous. It's why he's still here. You are saying DO IT ANYWAYZ!! but it doesn't work that way in the NFL. If you have as bad a front office, coaching staff & injury situation as Jones has had, you are going to suck at the NFL level. It's as simple as that.


the one question here is this. Everyone keeps saying how bad the front office was, and they couldn't draft for shit, but they somehow got the QB pick right??

I think both things are true, the team was a mess, and Jones isnt good enough
Jones sucks but

Fromm and Glennon are literal garbage. Being better than them is like being better than Ozark, iced-tea or other shitty products that I cannot think of right now.
Jones is one of the luckiest people in the world

Hes worked for 3 years. He's sucked at his job consistently. And he's made enough money to be set for life.

And just on a sporting level hes still lucky  
Jerry in_DC : 7/2/2022 7:23 pm : link
He gets trotted out game after game, year after year pn the pff chance that he doesn't suck.

Lots of guys get a few games, or maybe only a few plays to try to prove that they can play. Maybe they never even get a play. Yet Jones gets 4 full years despite being a terrible QB.

wasn't dealt the best hand, but as the 6th pick it's very hard to convince me that anyone - including our owner - should feel "bad" for Jones.

If there was more evidence that Jones had shown difference-making skills, I would be willing to consider this. But Jones hasn't. What we have seen over three years is a game manager-type with a very low ceiling.


The only argument for Jones is that without him, the offense went from pretty bad to USFL level.

He has one more shot due to serendipity. Let's see what he does.

What's even more bizarre is after his disaster of a second season, they don't even find a backup worthy of competing against Jones.

What's even more bizarre than that they give him ANOTHER chance to "pop off" in his 4th year of working.

Has a QB/RB combo like Jones/Barkley (who have gotten 0 done) ever started this many years in a row together? Yikes.

Glennon has made 5 nfl rosters and been in the league for 10 years. Jake Fromm started in the BCS championship game. They 'literally' aren't garbage.
Jones is going to have to have a great year

to still be on this roster next season. If I ask the magic 8 ball i feel like it will say, "outlook not so good"

Does anyone else feel like their hedged? If he sux this year as many suspect the Giants move on and continue the decades long rebuild, if he has a great year maybe we have something with the combo of Jones/Daboll

I'm going to make a wild guess here and say you missed the last 6 games of the season.

Every Sunday they played was garbage day.

If you did miss those games, the joke isn't on you, I guess.

I see what you're saying, but the great year doesn't seem very likely. A lot more likely is "the arrow pointing up" year, where Jones is like the 18th best QB in the league. That mild improvement combined with Mara's lust for Daniel, could lock us into mediocrity for a long time
